Do Things, Tell People.
I really like this piece. We’ll always be distracted by big dollar signs, productivity, optimization, and all the other things we think will make us more “successful”. Sometimes though, we need to just build whatever the heck we want, even if it might suck.
Who cares. If you’re into it you’re going to have fun building it and you’re surely going to learn something. Don’t let it stop there, though, show it to the world, get involved in community and talk about it. That’s where a lot of magic happens.
